Celebrity fashion has had a colorful few years — from lockdown-fueled tie-dye loungewear to Barbiecore pink. So it was only a matter of time before Hollywood was “back in black,” as AC/DC would put it.
Nothing speaks sophistication quite like the timeless shade, and right now, stars are wearing black clothing from head-to-toe. In February, Gigi Hadid and Lea Michele walked on the wild side of the trend, Hadid with an all-leather take of a statement bomber, knee-high boots, and fingerless gloves, and Michele wearing a dramatic dress-top and trousers accessorized with an oversized zipper belt.
At the February 22 premiere of Party Down, Jennifer Garner and Kristen Bell wore more classic interpretations of the trend in the form of dressy black jumpsuits; Garner’s featuring cap sleeves and a boxy neckline, and Bell’s featuring a wrap detail and off-the-shoulder long sleeves.
And most recently, the ladies of Friends — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow — reunited on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Cox’s induction ceremony wearing, you guessed it, all black, bundled up in knee-length trench coats. (It’s like they planned it or something!)

Especially amid the unseasonably cold weather in Los Angeles, you can’t really blame stars for stepping out in the classic color. And the best part is, their sleek silhouettes are super easy to recreate.
Digging Aniston or Michele’s business chic trousers? The Spanx Perfect Pant (also beloved by Oprah) will effortlessly emulate their looks — whether you’re wearing them for work or play. They’re extra comfortable thanks to the four-way stretch premium ponte fabric they’re made from and the fact that they have a pull-on design that’s free of buttons.
